Tradewind Voyages, and its ship Golden Horizon, the largest square-rigged sailing ship in the world, are delighted to announce that their voyages are now on sale.

The programme features iconic destinations and rarely visited islands. The launch of these sailings has been backed by a promotional campaign entitled 'Powered by the winds of change', which highlights the company's commitment to sustainability and promise to protect customers' money during these uncertain times.

All monies taken for bookings will be held and protected in a trust account until holidays have been completed, to offer customers complete peace of mind when booking.

Furthermore, if Tradewind Voyages has to cancel a voyage due to Covid-19, it guarantees customers will be able to transfer to another voyage or receive a full refund of monies paid.

Golden Horizon will debut with an ex- UK programme from May 2021, before heading east, following the winds and tracking a course around the world. The ship will accommodate just 272 guests and offer the most sustainable cruises available, with the aim to sail, without using engines, for around 70% of each season.

"Uniquely, all Golden Horizon's voyages are planned on the basis of prevailing winds and currents around the world, often following the traditional trading routes and offering a real maritime experience," said Tradewind Voyages chief executive Stuart McQuaker. "The ship will appeal to active adults." The new programme includes nine voyages departing and finishing in the UK, with seven from Harwich and two from Glasgow, between May and August 2021. Among the highlights are a 21-night Midnight Sun voyage in June from Harwich to the Arctic, where the sun doesn't set in summer, with cruise-only prices from £4,249 per person. Tromso, the Land of the Midnight Sun, is the start of the Arctic adventure and Golden Horizon will sail to several ports including Longyearbyen in Norway's Svalbard archipelago and Honningsvag, the capital of the North Cape.

From September 2021, Golden Horizon will sail around the world. Among the many highlights is a 15-night 'Bay of Bengal and The Malacca Straits' voyage in November, from Sri Lanka's capital Colombo to Thailand and on to Kuala Lumpur. The trip offers the opportunity to view wild leopards at Yala National Park, shorebirds at Bundala National Park and elephants at Udawalawe. Cruise-only prices start from £3,399 per person.
